Subject:
Urethane and Polyurethanes

Don Stephan
Some products self identify as urethane finishes and some self identify as polyurethane finishes. Are they basically one and the same or are there meaningful differences.

Years ago I saw examples of polyurethane finishes and they were a rather thick film that felt like plastic. I ask the above question because I don't want to waste time and money sampling urethane products if the result will be similar to what I saw years ago.
